Thanks Lynne. I look forward to listening.

Question for you. What part of the title you submitted needs to go into the MW?
The Three Dogs by Andrew Lang (1844-1912)(from Grimm's Fairy Tales)
All I put in was The Three Dogs by Andrew Lang, being as "Andrew Lang" is in the database.

That's what I would do, too. He wrote the book, but he collected stories from other sources and re-told them.

Heya

I would be willing to do a poem if you will accept it for this collection:
The Vagabonds by J.T. Trowbridge (1827-1916)
https://www.gutenberg.org/files/19226/19226-h/19226-h.htm#Page_57

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Townsend_Trowbridge

To be honest... I kind of have the recording ready to go now... so if you don't want it in this, I will submit it for a poetry collection... but I selected it for the dog theme :)

PL Notes A Dog Day

Hi Grant, what an unusual and delightful story! You did a great job bringing out the humor. Alas, I have a few notes for you to attend to:

4:23 missing word: "Memo: to take it out of her kittens later."
9:08 missing text, and two time errors: You read 8:10 and 8:20, but it really is 8:01, followed by 8:02, then you skip 8:05 thru 8:30, and pick up again at 8:40.

8:1.
Ravenous.
8:2.
Have one of the nicest pieces of coal I have ever
come across.
8:5.
Nose around the kitchen floor, and glean a bit of
onion, an imitation tortoise-shell comb, a shrimp
(almost entire), an abominably stale chunk of
bread, and about half a yard of capital string.
After coal, I think I like string best. The family
have noticed what a lot of this I stow away, and
it was not a bad idea of young Mr. Brown’s, the
other day, that, if I had the end of a piece of
string always hanging from my mouth, they could
use me as a string-box. Though it is scarcely a
matter for joking about. Still, it made me laugh.
8:30.
If one had to rely on other people one might
starve. Fortunately, in the hall I happen on the
treacle-pudding, and I get first look in. Lap up
the treacle, and leave the suet for the family.

8:40.
Down into the kitchen again. Sit by the fire,
and pretend I don’t know what treacle is like.

Outro: End of A Dog Day, A is missing.
------------------------------------------------------------------
TIP: I'm betting you didn't follow along with the text on your final PL of your file, or you would surely have noticed the missing text above. Is that right? Some readers rely on PL'ers to discover such errors. However, be aware that not all PLers follow along with the text, so they wouldn't catch the missing text either. I always follow along, on my own and other readers' files. I don't want any authors gazing at me from above and smacking their foreheads in horror at my mussing with their story.

TIP #2 For some weird reason, text sometimes goes missing from a gutenberg project. It's there when you record it, and not there when you proof it, or vice versa. Same link, same story. So I ALWAYS refresh a gutenberg page every time I use it. Like I clicked on your link, and then when it opened I refreshed the page. It's one of those "mysteries" I don't bother to try and figure out. I just pass the suggestion along.
Tip 2 is interesting indeed. Now I will "refresh"often.

Hey I noticed 2 letters in the mw, .
"Ma". What does that stand for?

MA is Michele’s shorthand to say she has added the metadata. That is necessary before going to catalog, and why we ask for author details and the text link. If the BC doesn’t do it, it is down to the poor, over-burdened (?) MC.

ma = metadata added. It is added by the BC or MC before cataloguing, so that Author and e-text can appear after the name of each story in the catalogued project, and the stories are individually searchable by title or author. Very neat feature of Collections.

Sounds very neat indeed Michele.

Oh no, of course the Mc is overburdened and I am certain appreciates the ma notation. Thanks for your answer to my question.

PL Notes The Dyer's Dog
2:32 Please remove this stray sentence fragment "set in the sun on the dyer's doorstep."
I have seen pink poodles and blue poodles! The poor things.

The Vagabonds is PL OK. Thanks for this contribution, Rowan (sp?). Dogs are amazingly loyal.

You might want to go to your Control Panel (drop down arrow in upper right corner of any forum page, next to your username) and set up a signature so we'll know for sure what to call you and how to spell it.
